4th Grade: Assemblage Art Sculptures

"Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind."
-Louise Nevelson

Where is the "junk drawer" in your house? You know... the drawer--or maybe even the room-- where all the "I don't know what to do with this anymore" items go just like the land of misfit toys.  In the Patriot Art Room, we love using these types of things and engaging our creative minds in how to make them into art!

In looking at some of Louise Nevelson's large-scale installation pieces, we have been working on our mini-scale assemblage art sculptures using popsicle sticks and found objects from the classroom(s) and home. Finally, Miss W. used old spray paint to give a *golden* look.
